Dragonlance Wiki

Makel Ogrebane (? - 2445 PC) was a Minotaur gladiator who slew the Grand Khan in 2485 PC and freed the minotaur people. He was named Ogrebane for nearly wiping out the entire Ogre race, and he was named Minotaur Emperor ruling for the next forty years before dieing in his sleep.

When Makel was whiping out the ogres, he and his followers went to an abandoned ogre settlement and were ambushed. After seeing many of his followers die, he pushed his followers to victory.


One story has his rule coming to an end when he was killed at the ogre settlement that he led his followers against. He infact lived through this ambush to rule the minotaurs for many more years.
